Thank you for your post.
On your Admin Console screen, is everything else ON other than IWP?
Were there any problems with the deployment?
When testing the deployment, what is the error message when testing Instant Web Publishing?
Close out the database files and drag the database folder to the Desktop. Then, stop FileMaker Server Services and uninstall FileMaker Server (like you have done previously). Reboot the server and launch the Utility "Terminal". We need to reset Apache by issuing the command:
sudo cp /etc/apache2/original/httpd.conf /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
Quit Terminal and reboot again. Verify all of the ports in Knowledge Base Article #6427 are open:
Reinstall FileMaker Server and test again.
Please keep me updated with your progress.
Did not need to uninstall or stop the FMS10, since apache would not run.
First replacing the httpd.conf file with httpd.conf.default file did the trick.
Then I started the apache from the command line.
I went to FMS Admin. Clicked on Edit Web Deployment and everything worked. Took about 10 minutes.
The original problem was during the initial install of FMS10A, the web deployment failed because the
web service would not start.
the admin console screen web server was yellow because it was not on.
IWP was green. The others I did not deploy the second time. So not sure what the FMS8 uninstall or the FMS10 install did to apache.
